OPST Commando Smooth

119,99 EUR

Manufacturer: OPST

The original OPST Commando Head changed the game for trout spey and single hand Skagit tactics. But for streamer, dry fly and nymph fishing, where you often fish at close range and strip flies right up to the rod tip, we knew we could improve it.

Enter the Commando Smooth – a Commando Head and a thin, slick coated running line integrated into one with a smooth, gradual taper. No longer will you feel a bump as the running line/Commando Head junction enters the guides. You won't feel anything at all, except a jarring strike as a fish attacks your streamer.

OPST listened to the requests of numerous Commando Head fans, and created a line that fishes even better than the original. The Commando Smooth is designed to be used with OPST Micro Tips and OPST Commando Floating Tip - Trout Series & OPST SHS Commando Floating Tip - Steelhead/Salmon Series and OPST Commando Tips from 5 to 10 feet long. The running line is orange to provide a nice contrast against the Sauk Blue head. If you are looking for a line that can do almost anything, experience the Commando Smooth. It's just like the wildly popular Commando Head. Only smoother.

  • Integrated running line
  • Ready made loops on both ends of the line
  • Running line is made of coated monofilament
  • Suitable for single hand rods and light switch rods
  • Printed line ID on the front end
  • Ultra-short design performs exceedingly well with a continuous casting stroke
  • Use with tip line or polyleader
  • Works with both skagit and overhead casting, two hand and single hand rods
  • Casts bulky flies
